Summary:
Emerging Trends in Archival Science provides readers with an excellent overview of the variety and scope of current scholarly thinking in archival science. A new generation of thinkers is making the case for the importance of archives for addressing grand societal challenges such as peace and security, human rights, and adaptation to technological change in the information society. These emergent archival scholars are bringing fresh insights about the nature of the archival endeavor and the role of archives in preserving evidence of an increasingly complex and diverse society. They are thinking about how people create, manage, and interact with records, and how the next generation of archivists can best be equipped to handle the recordkeeping challenges of the 21st century. As contemporary academics grapple with these challenges, new knowledge is emerging from their work that calls for dissemination to those professional and educational audiences that will benefit from it and apply it their own contexts. With that goal in mind, Emerging Trends in Archival Science aims to gather the best of current thinking in archival science.
